28 Sept – 8 Oct 2017, Adelaide, South Australia
A festival of innovation, collaboration, ideas and enterprise
Open State is a festival of collaboration, innovation, ideas and enterprise. It aims to: Position South Australia as a place open to new ideas, new people and new technology; Connect leading national and international expertise with SA government, business and community organisations; Inspire a culture of innovation and collaboration in South Australia; Position South Australia as a leader in democratic reform, business and community innovation.
Open State allows us to peer into the future across six future-focussed themes. What does rapid change and technology mean for our health and wellbeing as future humans? What will the future planet where we live look like – will it be a toasty Earth or another? How will people, design and technology shape the future cities of tomorrow? What does future food look like and where will it come from? Can future enterprise make a profit and deliver social good, and what will careers look like? How can a future democracy address the big global issues and help us find new ways to work together?
